American woman wakes from surgery – and thinks she’s in Scotland


A VIDEO shows the moment an American girl wakes up from wisdom tooth surgery – and is convinced she’s in Scotland.

Kelsie Kopicki, who lives in West Palm Beach, Florida, was given general anaesthetic to have four wisdom teeth removed last week.

When she wakes up, she hears her Scottish boyfriend talking and becomes convinced they are 4,000 miles away in his home country.

Despite his attempts to reassure her they are in the US – and the fact it’s about 30 degrees centigrade outside – Kelsie begins to apologise to her mum and say that they will “be home soon”.

The clip begins with 21-year-old Kelsie struggling to speak as most of her mouth is numb following surgery.

Her boyfriend, 25-year-old Liam Gourlay from Irvine, North Ayrshire, suggests she record a message on camera to send to her mum.

Kelsie then looks into the lens and says: “Mum, I’m sorry I did this in Scotland. I didn’t even know.

“But we’re gonna be okay. Right?”

Liam, who moved to America to play football, replies: “Yeah, but we’re not in Scotland.”

Kelsie, by this point, looks as if she is about to burst into tears.

She says: “But you’re Scottish.”

Liam replies: “Yeah but, we’re in America.”

Kelsie continues to shake her head and insist they are still in Scotland – where the pair recently had a holiday.

Despite Liam’s insistence, she says: “Why are you talking like that, man? You have a Scottish accent.”

Liam says: “I know I’ve got a Scottish accent but we’re in America.”

Kelsie responds: “We’re going to America soon mum, and then we’ll come pick you up. And we’ll say ‘Hi’.

“And I want to see Bella.”

Kelsie’s mum, Maria Kopicki, said: “I posted the video on Facebook and people were literally dying laughing so hard.

“Kelsie met her boyfriend Liam in college at Northwood University in West Palm Beach, where they both graduated last month.

“Kelsie visited Liam’s family in Scotland this past holiday. So when she woke up from surgery and heard his accent, she thought she was in Scotland and began apologising to me.

“Liam tried telling her she was in America, but she didn’t believe him. Bella, who she references at the end of the video, is our 14-year-old Beagle.

“Liam is a fine young man and he’s taken very good care of her in her recovery.

“I think the video is hilarious as do hundreds of other people.”
